I apologize for double posting but I've been working it last night and it seems easy. ElBlocko I hope you can read this!

x31BE is the ROM address to your question. At x31BF, change the hex to 01 to disable only the timer and the animations still enabled. I think 00 is both the timer and animations. Disable it completely by putting EA 5 times to turn off the ASM code which won't exist.

There may be a side effect, grabbing the Koopa Kid's wand may continue to tick timers if the code is disabled at x31BE and kills the player once it reaches 0. So I'll probably or ANYONE could easily JumpSubRoutine and add the RAM code of the stop time tickers in the empty slot in the ROM area where the RAM address that does the flashing timers after the wand is grabbed.

Hey there. Sorry for my, um, lateness to your reply. I've taken a break from editing SMB3 for a while mainly because of lack of interest, but I hope to get back into it soon.

Thanks for the tips! I'll be sure to try them out soon. As for the Magic Wand thing, a lazy workaround I've implemented is simply to put a ceiling above the Koopa Kid so that the wand never appears onscreen. Yes, this means you don't need to defeat the Koopa Kid to advance, so I'm planning to design the "arena" as an area where you need to sprint and make a jump, and with the Koopa Kid still alive, this would be very hazardous to pull off. I'll also need to design them so that you can't simply charge up Raccoon/Tanooki and fly over the fight beforehand.

Anyway, thanks again.

How do you change what items are in the mushroom houses if you're using Reuben?

I put a mushroom house on my map, made a mushroom house level, and stuck Toad's sprite in there where he's supposed to be... and it actually works pretty much perfectly without having to do anything complicated (apparently between Toad and the big chests, there's already everything you need to make a functioning mushroom house. Message comes up like normal and everything; I just needed to change Toad's palette since he was coming up white and green with the Reuben defaults.)

Now, the only problem is... every chest gives a P-Wing.

And speaking of chests--how do you determine what items are in the little chests found in levels? I noticed that Reuben does have them as sprites you can place inside levels, but when I tried to actually use one... a chest with glitchy colors came out of the other chest, and I got no item from it at all.

EDIT: Also, what the heck could be causing this level to be coming out like this glitchy mess?


The pillars need to reach the floor, or they will glitch, just like the windows, and they cannot be near or under the pipes. I haven't messed with my hack in a while, but it took me a while to get all of those glitches sorted out. Now the airship level....if I had hair, I'd pull it out.

Took me a while to figure out where the site disappeared to, and about twice as long to figure out my password.

Anyway, I randomly decided to make my unfinished SMB3 hack available for public download after nearly three years of stagnation, and since this is the place where I originally received encouragement and all that, I thought I'd post it here too! Yay?

Here's the trailer:



And here's the download link:

Mario Dreamscape v02

Enjoy! I'll be lurking around here again now that college is over, so if you have any comments, please don't be shy about sharing them.

The trailer looks pretty nice. I may have to give it a try after my last two weeks of college. Then I can play a lot more hacks and stuff.

I've completed placing the rom addresses for Super Mario All-Stars into one document. You can download it here. Every Friday it will be re-uploaded when I add more data into a document. I'll fix the level and enemy rom offsets since they are incorrect and can lead into problems when editing or viewing levels.

Would anyone be willing to help me?

I’m new to hacking, so I will need step by step instructions to learn, I might have the terminology wrong but I’m looking to learn these things:

Edit sprite tile mapping, using either the Disassembly or a hex editor. Could somebody show me how to do something simple, like change the goomba from using two tiles flipped to having 4 separate tiles?

Background tile mapping to put a sign post into a level like with Mario world.

Assigning each tile a new pallet, I know and have changed the colours from the palettes already set to each tile using a hex editor, but I am looking to reassign a specific pallet to a tile. For example using Mario’s palette for a piranha plant.

A big thank you to anyone who takes the time to help me.

It's possible, but the Magic ? Ball is an enemy sprite while the wand is a different sprite which is considered a special series. If I can figure out where the sprite initial comes from I'll change it's course.

Is it for NES SMB3 or SMAS, either way sprite tile mapping is the hardest to know. I haven't analyze how the NES version of sprite tile mapping works so there's no way I can but someone may help you. Good luck!

NES, Thank you for replying.

How about making a shelled koopa come from a ? box?
or change how many lives a 1up mushroom gives?

Something to explain how to get started.

1] How about making a shelled koopa come from a ? box?

It's possible to spawn a shelled koopa but it's not a regular sprite. It's a special object like with wands or kuribo's shoe. Unless you want to spawn a walking koopa instead. Otherwise it would be ASM related. Besides, the only person would spawn a kuribo's shoe from giant ? blocks is Dahrkdaiz. If possible MAYBE I'll get a workaround with that!

2] or change how many lives a 1up mushroom gives?

Again, it's also possible since there is a table of how many lives does a player gives. If I could study the coding especially how many lives for getting 3 goal cards, I can get a workaround to create a code where a player gets 2, 3, or maybe 10 lives from a single 1-UP mushroom.

Now onward with my question!


Hello, I may need help on this one! I'm trying to create the poisonous mushroom sprite replacing the starman and I got a problem with the starman sprite. I have tried to change it's location pointer at rom offset x2070 ($A060) and it worked which disables the flashing, but the main problem would be it's 1st jump after it pops from ? blocks and bricks. I've tried almost everything in the code breakpoint and didn't find the problem.

Then it come across with rom offset x2852 ($A842), NOP 5 bytes of a code and the Power-UP Mushroom and the 1-UP mushroom both make 1st jumps before landing on the floor after popping up from blocks. So how do I make the Starman do the same which it would NEVER make it's 1st jump like with Mushrooms?

I didn't know you logged on Insect.

Anyways, I'm dealing with a scrolling issue where the level doesn't want to scroll properly, it's unplayable and just scrolls wherever it wants to, the level shows up somewhat, and I knew I set the pointer, but it keeps doing whatever it wants while the enemy and offset data keeps rewriting itself. I can send you the test rom and txt file if you want to see what I'm talking about.

Since I just stumbled upon it, I thought I'd answer this post from a while ago and give a sort of a status update:

Posted by michelfp
1. Is it true that I have to be extremely cautious about accidentally overwriting other levels by using too many objects in one level?
2. Is it possible to hack SMAS with SMB3 Workshop?
3. Is SMB3 Workshop still being developed to provide further support and accidental-overwriting-proof?
4. Is it OK if I remove 1 3-byte object to add a 4-byte one?


1. Yes - however I'm planning to fix the 'Limit size' feature to enforce the limits in the ROM.
2. Technically yes, although the SMAS editing functionality is not nearly as full-featured as NES SMB3 editing.
3. No - the code is old and a horrible mess, and I haven't had the proper setup to even compile Workshop for a couple of years now. However I am planning to try and get it to compile at least so I can fix the 'Limit size' feature. I do not provide support as I've pretty much forgotten a lot about both the editor and the internals of the game itself.
4. It's OK as long as you stay inside the level size limits.


Oh, and please let me know if there's any other important bugs in Workshop that should be fixed. I can't promise I'll be able to or specify any sort of a time frame for when I'll get around to it.

Welcome Back, Hukka

I really missed you, Really, I do... Without SMB3WS, It did not inspire the Reuben project (dead) and the SMB3DIS disassembly (completed by SonicEpoch)

Hey, I'm somewhat new to the hacking scene and I was just wondering...

Does anyone know how to make the bosses more difficult?

I was thinking of making BoomBoom jump higher like in Some Usual Day and have the final 3 Koopalings require more hits on the hits on the head before they "die." Is there any way I could edit this using a hex editor or do I need to hack into the ASM?

Unfortunately it seems the only good way to add difficulty to a boss fight is through assembly. I've modified my boom boom to have a custom routine for each world he appears to make him difficult. For example: World 1's Boom Boom uses a Star to become invincible temporarily, leaving a smaller window of opportunity to attack. There's only so much you can do through hex editing since a lot of the routines are based around how many hits they have left.

I was afraid of that. I was also interested in putting the maps' songs in a couple of levels similar to what Shwa did in Chaos Control.
I know next to nothing about ASM hacking. Can you or JaSp give me a couple of pointers?
